I was doing some cleaning and found some old Nintendo Power magazines and decided to check them out. After reading a bit I found the old Pokecenter teams, and I have to say, they are absolutely horrible.
And since I didn't feel like cleaning the rest, I decided to post the teams on here for chuckles.
Mind you, the standard teams and movesets weren't around in '99-00, but apparently intelligence wasn't either.
Here's another of our favorite Pokemon. Jeremy's Exeggutor has Psychic, the strongest of the Psychic-type attacks. Sleep Powder is nearly 100% effective, and once the opponent is catching some Zs, Exeggutor can charge up a Solarbeam and let fly with Grass-type fury. Jeremy uses Barrage as a finisher and as what he calls "an annoyance attack". Jeremy came, he annoyed, and he conquered. Right on!
Just so you all know, Jake Gates of Illinois thinks that everyone else's teams thus far have been totally weak. He'd also like to add that every Pokemon on his team is at level 100, and that he got them there without using a game enhancer. And that he's caught all 151 Pokemon. And that his team will rule all on the Stadium Tour. And that anyone who fights with Mewtwo is a wimp. Hey - a little bit of confidence never hurt anybody, right?
All one needs is a Zapdos and Golem/Rhydon. I have to say from first hand experience that beating these types of players is the most satisfying of all.
Volume 133: Casey Sheehe's not lame team
Casey Sheehe of Elko, Georgia, must be the strong, silent type, because the letter we received had no taunts, no boasts and no challenges. It simply said "Don't make fun of my last name, it's Irish." ..... We don't make fun of names, just lame Pokemon teams. So you're safe!
Dewgong - Aurora Beam, Rest, Skull Bast, Ice Beam
Dewgong might have a funny name, but few Pokemon laugh when it unleashes an Aurora Beam!
Charizard - Dig, Fire Blast, Seismic Toss, Flamethrower Hypno - Hypnosis, Dream Eater, Psychic, Metronome Muk - Sludge, Thunderbolt, Fire Blast, Body Slam Marowak - Bone Club, Fire Blast, Seismic Toss, Bonemerang Scyther - Swift, Skull Bash, Substitute, Slash
A single Starmie could trash the entire team, barring some struggle with Hypno. A Surfing one would be even better.
Volume 136: Aerodactyl
Toxic, Fly, Dragon Rage, Hyper Beam
Aerodactyl is an .... Alanna obviously loves the Hyper Beam, and as it does the same amount of damage no matter which Pokemon you're attacking, it's worth the loss of a turn! Fly and Dragon Rage are both very powerful in Aerodactyl's claws, and Toxic adds a touch of the otherwise missing Poison-type to the team.
Despite there's a Gengar on the team, Poison sucks, and Toxic can be Normal for all it matters.
And this is pre '01! Now, I don't recall any Ian Garvey. Is this the champion of battles you actually had to go to (whereas all the Netbattle Pros aren't necessarily involved with), or is this actually the real deal guy here? I'd like to know, to see if he got anywhere or knew of competitive battling.
Garvey is EeveeTrainer. He was on Netbattle back when I played, but I'm not sure about the community back in 2000. He used to go to Smogon sometimes, but I don't frequent Smogon anymore, so I am not sure if he still goes on there. Last I remembered he ddos'd a server or something >_>;;. --- GTM Fanclub
